I Never Wanted To Be Like You (Ich wollte nie sein wie Ihr)

traducere în Engleză

I Never Wanted To Be Like You

I never wanted to be like you,
that never interested me
I had my objective in the crosshairs
I sit at home and manage to
put this woe on paper
while you’re throwing a party on Friday nights
You think I’d be arrogant, but
I don’t have to welcome everyone,
if I’m honest,
this life makes me weary
I’m not at a party
I’m at my place, my friend
‘cause this life creates too many
wrinkles on my forehead
I don’t think too highly of your glamour world
in which every second guy
thinks he’s a banger ¹
Man, that’s me, brother; just the way I am
Damn, I live that way,
ey, the life that you people lead is so sleazy!
I never wanted to be like you
I wanted to have peace and
just be in love with you
So many broken pieces, I drop to the ground,
but in spite of everything, I never buckled ²

Refrain:
I never wanted to be like you,
no matter what you all have done
you could never impressed me
Man, I’m staying that way; damn,
I’m proud of it
even if I never sell a gold record in my lifetime
I never wanted to be like you
Never be like him or her
My heart is too strong for that
No, I never wanted to be like you
I never wanted to be like you

I never wanted to be like you
I’ve never respected the way you live
I swear, you’re the marionettes of society
The world in which you live – champagne or seltzer
Can’t these drunken people
see and look for a person,
who finally understands me?
I never wanted to be like them,
there’s nothing to celebrate
as long as this life takes us down at the knees
I didn’t become a rapper just to make waves;
I don’t take pride in having criminal family members
I’m me, brother; it’s just the way I am
I could never be you
‘cause your life remains a copy
Everybody’s freakin’ out and
they’re talkin’ like Baba, ³
but I’m ashamed
for the tears of my mama
and that’s why I won’t play hardball for the gold rush
I never wanted to be like you, and I’m proud of it

Refrain:
I never wanted to be like you,
no matter what you all have done
you could never impressed me
Man, I’m staying that way; damn,
I’m proud of it
even if I never sell a gold record in my lifetime
I never wanted to be like you
Never be like him or her
My heart is too strong for that
No, I never wanted to be like you
I never wanted to be like you

I never wanted to be like you
I come from the street, but
I’m not one of those rappers without a brain
Let’s take a spin in my Benz
Ey, the stars of the kids
are the dogs of the gangster
Look, every single rapper,
who’s now ready
for me is a fake and a disgrace
Lack, I never wanted to be like you ⁴
Man, you people walk over so many dead bodies
just to make a profit. I’m me, brother,
just the way I am, the person you could never be
You’re the losers of Dsights ⁵
Man, I see the pictures on TV
Please be ashamed of yourselves; I know what I’d do
if I were a millionaire
To me, the right woman was always worth more
than a whore ‘cause this imaginary world is abusive
I never wanted to be like you
The only problem was that you could never accept it

Refrain:
I never wanted to be like you,
no matter what you all have done
you could never impressed me
Man, I’m staying that way; damn,
I’m proud of it
even if I never sell a gold record in my lifetime
I never wanted to be like you
Never be like him or her
My heart is too strong for that
No, I never wanted to be like you
I never wanted to be like you

⁴Lack: I wasn’t able to find any references on this so I’m treating it as a name. If anyone knows any different, I’d love to hear from you!
